I’m very new to Linux, and found Monjaro to be a solid starting point because I want to eventually get accustomed to arch. I’m having an error that has persisted over 3 separate USB sticks and 3 separate downloads (each verified sha1).
When I boot to the Start screen and select start with proprietary drivers, I get the following error:
# typed by hand since I cant upload an image:
starting version 251.2-3-manjaro
mount: /run/miso/sfs/livefs: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0
dmesg(1) may have more information after failed mount system call
ERROR: failed to mount '/dev/loop0'
I’ve searched the error above multiple times, but a lot of the answers go right over my head. Any help is greatly appreciated!
you can download the latest from here
use ventoy, and boot the iso in bios mode if you are using bios, or uefi mode if you are using uefi
check if secure boot is disabled
and you said that it happens with proprietary drivers, so try open source instead
Im following a tutorial to create a windows VM with a single gpu, and I chose manjaro since it’s what the tutorial is using. I also like what I’ve heard about arch, so I’m thinking it may be best for me to start with manjaro. I’m not fully sure, but I don’t think setup should be giving me this much trouble. Just trying to get it set up so I can start using it
So I’ve verified that secure boot is disabled and UEFI is enabled. Tried linux mint with ventoy and was successful, but it only boots in comparability mode… In the normal mode, I’m only getting steaks on my screen.
Would it help to update my bios? Does it matter that I’m using a 5th gen ryzen with a 2000 series nvidia gpu?
